The Mega Millions jackpot soared to an estimated $636 million on Tuesday, making it the second largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history.
Lottery officials say Tuesday’s drawing could feature half-a-billion dollar winner.
If it seems that giant lottery jackpots have people lining up at convenience stores more frequently, just wait: More big payouts could be coming.
For the fourth consecutive year the Missouri Lottery ticket sales have broken previous records.
The sales will be offered at 15 gas station and 150 pumps, though the locations have not yet been determined.

Online sales are less than one-half of 1 percent of the lottery’s total take. The bill has passed the Senate Executive Committee.
Players limited to $150 of purchases per day.
